A floofty lil video from Matt and Jenny Acker’s bike packing trip on the Baja Divide during November/December of 2017. A glimpse into some of the terrain, animals and snacks encountered along the way told in a truly weird way by an amateur videographer and bearded cyclist. Thanks to all our sponsors for hooking us up with the goodies necessary to ride the Baja, and to Mexico, for being so hospitable, beautiful and delicious, and for welcoming Matt and I and our bikes with open arms. Hope many more people get a chance to ride and enjoy the Baja Zig Zag Divide
